So I have a shelf of “maybe” reads on goodreads. Let’s try to clean it out, shall we? A bit of a spring clean. And then I didn’t post this until fall. But you get what I mean. I’ve already tried the Down the TBR Hole for trying to make this TBR shorter, but these books are more at random.
Rags & Bones by Marr, Gaiman and a lot more
Date: October 2016
Retelling of classic tales, which can be both really good or really bad.
Keep, if only for the Gaiman story
Timekeeper by Tara Sim
Date: December 2016
Reader friends seem to not like the execution, even if they like the idea of it.
Negatives: I’m not the biggest fan of badly done victorian style books, and the synopsis give me very little to go on. Also it is apart of a series.
Of fire and stars by Audrey Coulthurst
Negative: The synopsis of princesses and alliances of marriage wanted me to let this go
Positive: a promised big lesbian romance. This seems to be a trend for making me change my mind, hah.
Keep, for the lesbians
The song of all by Tina LeCount Myers
Negatives: synopsis gives me no idea of what this is
Positives: It’s set in the winter and scandinavian
Keep, it’s worth one try
The eagle tree by Ned Hayes
Positives: Main character is a young autistic boy, and I really want to read books from experiences I don’t know of.
Negatives: The goodreads rating is kind of bad (3.8). How is it about trees? I’m confused
Maybe?? I need some input
Girl, stolen by April Henry
Blind girl? Great. Kidnapping? Oh, well – Accidental kidnapping? NO, I’m out. That’s not my style, thinking about it.
The fact of a body: a murder and a memoir by Alexandra Marzano-Lesnevich
True crime, which I like, but I don’t remember why I added this book. All the reviews seem to say nothing of substace about what’s going on.
Maybe, confused about what the book is about
Exit west by Mohsin Hamid
Positives: Magical realism, romance during chaos and civil war, becoming refugees
Keep, and I really rediscovered how good this seems
I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard really good things about The Song of All.

That’s promising at least!
